Well one week today and it will all be over!
It has been a busy couple of days in Tuck Towers as I suddenly realised that I hadn't brought one single present. Exit rather swiftly to do battle in the shops, I hate shopping, unless it is craft shopping obviously. But I did made time to finish off something that has been knocking around on my desk for a couple of weeks, bit unfinished and unloved.
Many moons ago I was given a wooden house as a present and too be honest I really didn't know what I wanted to do with it. I had an idea a while back of using it for a friend as a photo memory of her dog which she sadly lost. Unfortunately we lost contact and that plan had to be shelved. So back into the cupboard of doom it went until a couple weeks back.
What did I come up with..............................as it is that time of the year, it had to be a Christmas House or should that be a Tim House. It has really not turned out how I wanted it to as I was unable to find the bits and bobs I wanted to use inside each compartment. But a very nice lady called Jackie came to my aid over the weekend with some alternatives and I love it. Thank you Jackie.
As I cannot make up my mind which photo I like the most (cluttered or uncluttered background) I have used both. I am so in one of them moods tonight, procrastinating far too much.
I have really enjoyed making festive bits and bobs this year which in past years is not something I would normally do. I have one more to finish before next week..............
Thank you for looking and I would love you to leave a wee comment at the top of the post, so I know what your thinking.
Take care Sue.
